PKR Casino is the casino arm of the trusted poker room, PKR. If you're wondering what PKR stands for, then it doesn't stand for anything - it's just 'poker' shoved into upper case and then 'disemvoweled'. PKR is a self-owned concern, and is based in Alderney in the UK's Channel Islands. It runs under Alderney and UK gambling licences.
PKR itself was founded by Jez San in the summer of 2006. Its aim was to create a realistic, 3D-style environment in which players could play using avatars. This aspect of the site was dismissed as a little 'gimmicky' and the software could be a little clunky and unreliable, so PKR offered 'normal' poker software as well. In 2016 PKR announced it would be migrating from its current, standalone poker platform to the Microgaming Poker Network (MPN).
So is the PKR Casino an MZNG experience, or a pile of CRP? Read on to find out ...
Hold onto your hats - PKR Casino has an extremely generous welcome offer of a three hundred percent welcome bonus up to €/£/$300, plus 25 FREE GAMES EVERY WEEK on Bar Bar Black Sheep for one year! All you need to claim this amazing bonus is to be a new customer and to make a first deposit of €/£/$25 or more. You could claim a staggering 1,300 free games!
You also unlock your 'Fab Fortnight' where you can claim a twenty-five percent bonus up to €/£/$100 and twenty-five free games EVERY DAY (also on Bar Bar Black Sheep) for fourteen days, starting the day after you make your first deposit.
To keep your free games up and running, you will need to make a deposit of at least €/£/$25 at PKR Casino during every seven day period. If you forget, then your freebies will cease.
To withdraw your bonus or any winnings (including free spins winnings) you need to wager them at least forty times. You can only use slots to meet your requirements - no other games. The slots Megaspin - Break da Bank Again, Castle Builder, Megaspin - Double Magic, Dragon's Myth, Megaspin - Fantastic 7s, Forsaken Kingdom, Megaspin - High 5, Megaspin - Major Millions, Max Damage, Mega Moolah, Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive, Mega Moolah Isis, Mega Moolah Summertime, Alien Attack, Peek-a-Boo, River of Riches, Scrooge and Stardust are all excluded from wagering requirements too.
Other promos were a little scant when we visited PKR Casino. The only other offer we could find was 'Free Games Frenzy' which earns you free games on slots every day.
The site does offer a VIP scheme, though. This is on a six-tier basis, from 'Red' to 'Ruby Elite'. You begin on 'Red' level as soon as you sign up with the casino, and you earn one VIP point for every £/€10 you spend at the casino (or PKR's poker site). You need to earn 100,000 VIP points a month to make it to 'Ruby Elite' level. Naturally, the higher you climb up the scheme, the better the benefits including bonus credits and personalised offers. You can also redeem every 1,000 VIP points you earn for £/€10.

PKR Casino is actually split two ways: PKR Casino and PKR Vegas. PKR Casino has software from Microgaming, whereas PKR Vegas just has software from Microgaming ... no, we're not sure why this is split either!
The content is slots-heavy, as you might expect. PKR Casino has well over three hundred slots, and most of them are also available at PKR Vegas too. There are some really nice ones too, such as Hot as Hades and Jurassic Park.
There are eight versions of roulette and twenty-nine versions of blackjack, plus baccarat, craps, casino poker and sic bo. Video Poker fans should be more than satisfied with twenty-three versions of their favourite gambling pastime.
In August 2016, PKR Casino added a live casino, where you could play live blackjack, roulette and other games.
PKR Casino has a pleasing, contemporary feel. It doesn't go overboard on text, and it's not continually bragging about its brilliance, or its amazing bonus offers. Everything is understated, which is just how we like it here at branchoutmovement.com. The only thing we don't like is the continual scrolling you have to do to get to the bottom of the page to make the icons appear. There is a search function though, which is a bonus.
if you enjoy playing poker, then you can switch to PKR Poker very easily via the site.
All software here is provided by Microgaming. PKR Casino used to be powered by Playtech, but we think the switch to Microgaming is in line with PKR Poker's switch to the Microgaming Poker Network. Microgaming has many very decent games, including plenty of top-notch table games.
The site has a mobile version. There are not as many games as on the desktop site, but there's more than enough.
There is live support available 24/7 ... although when we tried it we were '1 in a queue of 1' and the waiting time was '3 seconds' ... but no one responded to us at all! Must have been on a coffee break!
Available Software: Microgaming.
There are plenty of ways to fund your gambling activities at PKR Casino. The site accepts debit and credit cards (including the virtual credit card Entropay), PayPal, Neteller, Skrill, Paysafecard (which now incorporates Ukash) and wire transfers.
The minimum you can deposit is £/€10, and there are no fees. Deposits are more or less instantaneous.
You are allowed one, fee-free withdrawal every seven days up to a maximum of £/€2,000 per month. Other withdrawals incur a two percent fee. The minimum withdrawal you can make is £/€20. Withdrawals take twenty-four to forty-eight hours for PayPal, Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard, and three to five days for credit and debit cards. Wire transfers can take up to seven days.
Most of this info is available in PKR Casino's very detailed FAQ section.

Aside from the curiously shy live support, we like what we find at PKR Casino a lot. We are extremely pleased that they have added a live casino, as that has been lacking before. If we were being picky we might moan about the fact that there's only one software provider, although at least with Microgaming it's a very good one.
We like the design of the site, the transparency of the welcome bonus offer, the VIP scheme and the clear and concise FAQ section. In fact, we are of the opinion that PKR Casino is a bit of a WNNR!Sounds good, sign me up!
